Casing dunk
    #4161808 - 05/11/05 02:41 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Before I start let me say that I did try to search for the answer before asking and I am sure it has been asked before. 

I have completed a decent number of grows. Casings, cakes, PF, WBS, popcorn, etc (never used horse poo yet but I will soon). I always dunk my cakes but was unsure if I should be doing this with my casings as well.  I am assuming I should because after two flushes The casing seems very, very dry.  I do spray them well between each flush and patch up any open area.  Well anyway here are my questions:

1) Should I place a new thin layer of casing mix on top after each flush?
2) Can I dunk a casing and if I can how?  It just seems the casing would turn to mud or fall apart if I placed it underwater for 24hrs.

Thank fo your replies.  :blush:

yes you can dunk a casing just fill with enough clean water to just cover the casing i usualy just poke a small hole in the bottom to drain then just patch any larger mycelium spots on the top of your casing or anyplace the casing might have pulled away from the container

i have a casing in the fridge as we speak, it has no myc growth, aside from the stumps underneath the casing layer from the last flush, will it grow more in the fridge, or should i be fine without patching?

Read my thread in the GL&P section.  Better yet, do a search for Diver's thread, "Dunk those bulk subs."

He suggests dunking a bulk sub and then essentially double-end casing with dry verm, LIGHTLY.  Considering your bulk may not be entirely flat, it comes out looking like a giant dunk-and-rolled cake.  :thumbup:

Rollen- No problemo! Diver was kind enough to point it out to me in the grow log, so I thought I'd pass it on.
